               ABOUT US

SILVIO LEVAGGI   ANNA TARTARI
I trained at the Cremona International Violin Making School under the tuition of masters V. Bissolotti and W. Zambelli, obtaining my diploma in 1984.
 
In 1994 I began working with master violin makers Carlson, Cacciatori and Neumann in their workshop, a collaboration that lasted for six years. It was there that I acquired a deeper knowledge of stringed instrument restoration and conservation techniques.

In my workshop in Cremona I make violins, violas and cellos of the finest quality, inspired by classic Cremonese and Italian school of violin making.
